I believe many people know that copper has excellent thermal conductivity, but why are the custom heat sinks seen in computers all silver aluminum? I believe this problem has plagued many people for a long time, and I still don’t know why. So is the computer's heat sink made of copper or aluminum? Today, as one of the leading aluminum heat sink manufacturers, Shengyida will answer for everyone.
In fact, whether aluminum or copper should be used for heat dissipation in computers was indeed controversial a long time ago. However, the final result is also perfect, that is, any heat dissipation is a combination of copper and aluminum. This is the most suitable way to dissipate heat.
However, many people who buy radiators say that the heat sink is only aluminum and copper is not visible. Why is that? Because custom heat sinks are indeed aluminum, but the heat pipe hidden inside the heat sink is made of pure copper. So there is almost no copper tube on the surface.
Now everyone knows that the computer’s heat sink is made of copper or aluminum! In short, almost any heat dissipation system uses pure copper to conduct heat, and then aluminum fins to dissipate heat. Because aluminum fins can be made very thin and light, they can be very thin. It can increase the contact area with the outside world, and the thermal conductivity of the copper pipe is very good, so the two are generally complementary to each other.
